Matthew 28:16-20  (NIV)
The Great Commission
16 Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

 

Choose one or two key verses from the Scripture reading in Matthew today and do at least one of the following for your chosen verse(s).
A –  Ask questions of the text (Who, what, why, where, when)
– Emphasize certain words as you read the text over & over
I  –  In your own words (paraphrase one or more verses)
O  – Other verses in the Bible that say the same or opposite
U  – Use it; apply the truth from the text in your life

 

Lord, thank you that you send me out to go and make disciples of all nations. But right now I am in this nation, and there are people in my family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and in the community around me, that also need to know You. Lord, In Your Command, You also promised that as you send me out, the presence of Jesus will go with me. Thank You for that promise! Give me confidence, the behavior, and the words to lead others closer to You. Amen.
